Peter Kreeft My title explains itself. But it’s misleading. There are more than 40 reasons. Each of my reasons is an independent point, so I have not organized this book by a succession of chapters or headings. Which takes me back to my main point: “Why are you a Catholic?” is a good question. A good question deserves a good answer.

Ancient Rome’s brutal culture exploited the weak and considered human life expendable. Women were used as property; unwanted children were left on the streets to die. Four centuries later, even ordinary men and women prospered in what had become a vigorous new Christian society, a society that served the vulnerable, exalted women, treasured virtue, and loved peace.
Faith had triumphed. Truth was proclaimed. And on this rock-solid foundation, Christian society flourished in the West for the next 1500 years.
Here you’ll learn about the seven specific areas where any paganism, ancient or modern, is particularly vulnerable. They provide a roadmap for modern Christians to reclaim for the Faith our own neo-pagan modern culture.
Facing an overwhelmingly dark and hostile culture, Rome’s early Christians took the steps necessary to transform it. Their struggles and the hard lessons they learned documented here afford us hope that, by imitating their example, we may do the same for our culture today.

Memorising the Faith is no substitute for living a holy life, but even devout people can’t live by truths they can’t remember. That’s why, over 700 years ago, St. Thomas Aquinas perfected an easy method for his students to memorise most any information, but especially the truths taught by Christ and His Church. Refining techniques taught by the ancient philosophers, St Thomas created a mental “memory mansion” and a way to store information in “rooms,” where it remains, fresh and accessible, until you return to retrieve it.
Dr Vost remains faithful to St Thomas’ vision, showing how you can use this system to recall hundreds of key Church teachings, Bible verses, theological terms, and other elements of the Faith every Catholic needs to know by heart.

Responding to Relativism with Logic and Love
“Don’t be so judgemental!” “Why are Christians so intolerant?” “Why can’t we just coexist?” In an age in which preference has replaced morality, many people find it difficult to speak the truth, afraid of the reactions they will receive if they say something is right or wrong. Using engaging stories and personal experience, Edward Sri helps us understand the classical view of morality and equips us to engage relativism, appealing to both the head and the heart. Learn how Catholic morality is all about love, and why making a judgement is not judging a person’s soul.
